What to do with braces pain?

I just got braces today and my teeth are aching so bad! Is there any medicine I can take to make the pain go away?

Ibuprophen would help. Also u can ice your jaws on and off thru out the day and apply oragel to your gums. Stick to soup and other softer foods for a few days. Give your teeth a rest. If and when your braces start to rub u purchase some brace wax. These items can be found in the dental care aisle.

Use Anbesol (found at the local pharmacy) and a baby aspirin. One will be fine in 3 - 5 days. If one has access to an electric toothbrush, (such as Sonicare) you'll survive. Been there, done that.

Ibuprofen helps loads. Also, get lots of sleep and drink lots of milkshakes. Those help too.

That is because it supports your teeth.
